Paint on a canvas

When we stare at a blank canvas, we hesitate. Because be build a lot of tension on trying to decide where we want to draw our first line.

As we move forward, tension continues to build. If I mess up now, “look at all the work I have wasted.”

In our mind’s eye, it’s a house of cards. We have a picture of what it is we want this to look like. At the same, every brush stroke is a chance to mess this up.

The good news is there are lots of places to begin and a lot of ways to get to where it is you want to go. And you probably won’t take the path you set out to do.

The other good news? Paint and canvases are cheap. And so is your time and effort when you are perfecting your craft.
